STUDIO | Introduction to Mental Health for Yoga Teachers

24th April 2022 @ 09:30 - 13:30


STUDIO | Introduction to Mental Health for Yoga Teachers


As yoga teachers, improving mental health forms a large part of our offering, and indeed the reason that people turn to yoga. But mental health is a huge subject, and even the most dedicated yoga teacher might not be sure where to start to learn more about mental health, potential issues and relevant duty of care.


That is exactly what this workshop aims to address!


In this workshop for yoga teachers, we will begin to explore:

– what we mean by ‘mental health’
– advantages and disadvantages of differentiating between mental and physical health
– a holistic view of mental health from a trauma perspective, including socioeconomic-environmental factors
– an initial understanding of some common diagnoses (due to the dominance of the medical model and terminology in the west)
– the role of yoga in promoting positive mental health


Perfect for:

*  Anyone interested in broadening their understanding of mental heath within a holistic framework.

*  All yoga teachers; new, experienced and in-training



*Please bring a pen and notepad to the session*




* £35

*  £15 for Yoga Hero trainees and graduates
